Under the head light there are two push pins on each side .. Remove both of them ... Just under your top covers there is one screw on each side , remove them ..

Below the one screw in the front part of grills is a push pin holding a rubber shield , remove the pin .. Make sure to move the rubber lip that wraps around the grills ..It doesn't come off , just move it forword off the mid cowl ..

Now grab the hole mid faring with the lower still hooked to it .. pop it off the one point where it sets over the bolt hole that holds the upper covers in place ... Pull the mid and lower faring out away from the bike a few inches ... Now pull the hole mid faring to the rear of the bike and the mid faring will unhook from the upper cowl .. Unplug the turn signal wire and you are done ..

If i get time this week i will make a video and walk you guys thought it ...

"i think kawi over engineered that body work."....possibly...she looks excellent though!...I have ta say...I DID leave the TWO metal screws OUT OF THE REAR attachment point(s) on that upper,lower fairing flange.Geez...wth?The front...ya...I can see that one being needed...but that rear one?What a pain tryin to get that thing not only OUT...but back IN there!The belly fairing slid up in there real snug...can't go anywhere....Whattayou guys think?Leave em out?Been ridin her now for 400 miles...don't see any problem fitment- wise right there.

Good guide for people who can't figure it out. Think it takes 4-5 mins now to tear all the fairings off
